A farewell from Jessica:
Jessica Harrison’s last day with Madison Adoption Associates was Tuesday, August 22
. She is embarking on a new adventure that is very close to her home, reducing her commute and allowing her to spend more time with her family. We are very excited for her and all the wonderful things to come!
We leave you with a note from Jess.
“For everything there is a season” is a well-known biblical quote that I can relate to at this time. For me, my “season” with Madison Adoption Associates has come to an end. For some of you, we’ve just met and already have such a good connection. For others, we’ve been on a lengthy journey together and parting ways will be bitter sweet since I won’t get to see your ending but know it will be a happy one. Please never lose hope for the child you dream about and so passionately pursue in your adoption. For the adoption process is a brief “season” in your life but with a lifetime of parenting, family, and memories ahead of you.
Over my four years with MAA, I’ve had the honor, and privilege of meeting and matching so many, many families with children. How satisfying it is to change the course of someone’s life for the better! The smiles of children with their forever families are etched in my memory to hold onto always.
What’s next for me? I’ll be stepping back to wear my previous career hat of an Activities Director for seniors in an assisted living close to home. I’ll be actively engaging seniors with Bingo, happy hour, arts & crafts, sittercise, and the like in my next job. (After all, it was me who was MAA’s unofficial party planner!)
I am grateful to have known your family and be a part of your adoption story!
